CLARENCE SIMS NETTLES
was born on the 17th of July, 1862, at Darlington, S. C, the son of Hon. J. E. and Gertrude L. (Sims) Nettles. Suitable mention of the parents' ancestry will be found in another place in this volume. We find in Mr. Clarence S. Nettles one of the most eminent lawyers among the younger practitioners of the state. His scholastic training was most thorough, he having been prepared for college at the St. Johns academy, at Darlington, S. C. For a time he pursued an advanced course at Wofford college, Spartanburg, S. C., and then matriculated in the Vanderbilt university, of Nashville, Tenn., where he completed an extended classical course. In 1S82 Mr. Nettles, having chosen the profession of law as his life work, became a student in the law office of Messrs. Boyd & Nettles, at Darlington; and in 1S83, at the early age of twenty-one, was admitted to practice in all courts of South Carolina, and was elected president of his class. Among his classmates may be mentioned Mr. Paul Hemphill, of Chester, S. C; M. H. Fitzsimons, of Charleston; R. J. Kirk, of Mt. Pleasant, S. C, and C. C. Simmes, of Beaufort, S. C. During the years of 1883-4-5 Mr. Nettles was associated with Mr. J. J. Ward in the practice of law at Darlington, and in 1886 the present firm of Nettles & Nettles was established, he having formed a partnership with his distinguished father at that time. Mr. Nettles is also the senior partner in the firm of Nettles & Fraser, of Sumter, S. C. He is the general counsel for the Charleston, Sumter & Northern railroad, and also for the Central Carolina Land Improvement company, an organization chartered under the laws of New Jersey, with a capital of $200,000. Mr. Nettles is also a trustee of the graded schools of Darlington, and is prominent in advancing the interests of his city and state. In July, 1889, he was united in marriage with Miss Dora Norment, the only daughter of Dr. B. C. Norment, of Darlington.
